Senior Project Engineer (Former Employee) – Manassas, VA – March 15, 2017
No wonder why Lilly has been there for a long time. Eli Lilly really live by the saying that "the workforce is the most valued asset of the company". When Lilly closed the facility I was part of, they offered me any open position I wanted and even a lower position without experience. Lilly would protect my current pay for the first three years while I gain the required experience. This kind of loyalty while they offered an awesome severance package should I decide to leave the company. The mistake I made is that I left because of geographical preference to stay on the east coast. I wish I could rejoin Eli Lilly. If you have an opportunity to join Lilly, please accept the offer, you will be glad to work for this wonderful organization.

Lilly is a great company. They even provide a long lead time on layoffs, allowing those effected time to look for the next step in their careers. I would not leave accept for the recent layoffs,company-wide.
Too much bureaucracy, not enough critical decision making

They pay well and have great benefits, but don't treat the business well in other ways, such as by ensuring that the right people are in the right roles. They have also stopped being as flexible with work from home arrangements, unless a role is specifically field based.
benefits, pay, some life/work balance
bad management, don't fire people who should be fired
Typically analyze business, plan your route and make sales calls. To have success it requires persistence and a marathon type approach. Urgency is also required once the opportunities for growth are uncovered. Change is expected.
Corporate culture - full of high performing individuals that help raise your game

Eli Lilly is a great place to work! Has the best perks in the state PERIOD. Though if you are placed on the wrong team then watch out. Eli Lilly does not have a lot of empathy based people. A lot of people feel that they are provided because they have been there for 30 years but that is far from the truth. There work has been not to get fired for 30 years. A lot of these folks have no connection to the customers they serve.
Now on the plus side great perks and benefits.
On the other down side it'll take you around 5 to 10 years.
Too many people who think they are the boss of the company, Need to let go of some people who have been there too long and hurt by corporate america.
Good work-life balance but very hard to move forward in a career path. Many career opportunities exist at Indianapolis headquarters but not at other locations. Salary is amazing for Indiana employees but not for other locations. Salary is based on Indiana cost of living, which is problematic if you work/live in a higher cost of living location. Promotions are very difficult to get and rarely happen. However, they do prefer to higher within as often as possible in order to retain talent. Many have been employees for 20+ years. Benefits are average; great dental, average medical, rough vision, FSA available. Average time-off policies.No increase in time-off until 10 years of service. 6% 401k match and every full-time employee participates in pension plan at 5 years of service. New CEO at time of this review so it is too early to provide feedback. The best part of working at Lilly are the employees. Everyone is very friendly and genuinely helps others to succeed. A real team environment. Lots of volunteer opportunities to help local community.
Tax Department Summer Replacement Intern (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – March 17, 2017
I loved the company culture at Eli Lilly. The job provided me with training, knowledge, and exposure that I am still finding invaluable. My coworkers and the general feel of the company were wonderful and most people I worked with seemed happy in their positions.

It is always impressive to meet someone from IN who still can say - oh, you are a 'Lilly'... even with recent corporate changes, the red Lilly is flagship of America. I hope it can sustain the cost and demand of innovation to continue to do good work and what is right for the patient.
